Kevin Durant will be the cover athlete for EA Sports NCAA March Madness 08 as reported by the Seattle Times.

Durant is widely expected to be taken second in the 2007 NBA Draft and go to the Seattle Supersonics. It is possible however that the Portland Trailblazers could take him at number one where they have the choice between him or Ohio State’s Greg Oden.

In averaging 25.8 points and 11.1 rebounds per game as a Freshman for the Texas Longhorns, Durant won the AP College Player of the Year amongst several other awards. He has also been invited along with Oden to participate in the training camp for the USA Basketball team.

The release date for NCAA March Madness 08 is currently unknown. Last year NCAA March Madness 07 hit stores mid-college season on January 16th. However traditionally it has made its way out in October or November.
